It is is whichever comes first, so you're out of warranty.
Just FYI, I've found that a Torx T30 bit fits best, on my 2016 S.ElectricEddy wrote: ↑Mon Sep 03, 2018 6:12 pmI tried and got three full turns on both passenger doors ( driver's both ok)Chmdoman wrote:Our Nissan Leaf 2015 door handle started getting loose until the lock literally popped out of its hole. I did some reasearch and found it’s easy to fix with a Torx25 driver. It appears Nissan did not lock tight this screw and it backs out over time. The dealer quoted me $50 parts + $350 labor to fix! The parts are fine and it’s took 1 min to fix, I made a YouTube video showing how.
Thanks for the quick fix as both those handles would have loosened.
Great first post
I actually used a Torx 27 , maybe they increased the size?
I bought a 2 owner 2015 (owned in GA and TN) the handle looks like first or second owner might have tried some sort of glue. I just ordered someGerryAZ wrote: ↑Fri Aug 07, 2020 6:25 pmI don't think Shoe-Goo will be strong enough, but let us know how it works out if you use it. The JB Weld was still holding when I traded my 2015 in for the new car except that the plastic door handle was flexing a bit in the heat making it seem like the epoxy was coming loose. I was careful to avoid getting the JB Weld close to the button so the back of the plastic could still flex. Later posts described gluing the very back of the handle in addition to the main part (just avoid getting glue close to the button) so that would have kept the plastic from flexing.
On my Leaf anyway, the factory didn't use glue but rather a thin strip of double-sided tape, like the 1/2" W yellow packaging Scotch tape that comes in a dispenser like the single-sided red or green Scotch tape.
